What do you want to be when you grow up? Alien-hunter?

“Students can take a degree in the search for alien life in what a Welsh university claims is the first of its kind in the UK”

According to the BBC, the University of Glamorgan is to offer degrees in “alien-hunting?. The course combines astrobiology with popular culture (i.e movies about aliens). The University seems to want to increase the interest in science, but is seems a bit odd that they would base a scientific course on fiction. And what job would you get? I suppose you could get a job in movies or something, but I think it’s unlikely that you would get a call from NASA..

I’m not saying aliens don’t exist, but if they do, are they really going to be like ET?

    If defeating Obama means siding with Matthew Frank, then I side with Matthew Frank. If defeating Obama means siding with John Podhoretz, then I side with John Podhoretz. Defeating Obama is a far greater matter of pure principle than either (a) tolerance of or fairness to gays and (b) social conservative beliefs about gays.
